Environment

Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2
Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2 IR1
Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2 IR1 HP1
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES2)

Situation

Purpose:
Update Novell OES2 servers in the network using ZLM to mirror the OES2-Updates catalog from "https://nu.novell.com/repo" service

Symptoms:
Everything has been properly configured on the ZLM server and packages are downloaded from Novell to the local mirror server, however OES2 servers in the network are not getting any updates.

Changes:
When the OES2 server registers itself to the ZLM service, is registered as OES-10-i586, while the packages downloaded from the OES2-Updates catalog have SLES-10-i586 as target Operating System; for this reason no updates are scheduled to be received to the OES2 server.
